This was decent, but nothing special. I order a similar dish at Chili's (Monterey chicken) and was really excited when I saw this recipe, hoping to be able to re-create my restaurant favorite at home. Beyond the obvious difference (Chili's entree contains no ham), it would appear that the two are quite similar. To my dismay, this was nothing like Chili's Monterey chicken. Because I could not find pre-sliced Monterey-Jack cheese, I used Colby-Jack cheese instead (my only change). I regret that I purchased extra-thin sliced cheese tho.... It didn't melt as I wanted it to, so the appearance of my chicken was not what I'd expected. :( Mashed red potatoes with white pepper gravy, a steamed broccoli & carrot medley and garlic toast paired nicely with this (and made me feel like I was eating at the "chain"). It's unfortunate that the sides ended up being the star of our meal. Both my hubs and I agree that when the craving strikes, we'll visit our local hangout for the "real" deal. Thanks anyways, Kellie. :-)
